.@NBCPhiladelphia You just devoted a full segment to lauding a convicted rapist. You gave #BillCosby's attorney seven minutes to talk about how "Some women lie" and Cosby's long-overdue rape conviction was "infidelity" Cosby and Camille "dealt with." This was disgraceful.
70 women have accused Cosby of rape. He was deemed a violent sexual predator by the court for his decades of drugging and raping women.

Your piece presented Cosby as if these assaults never happened. Your reporter dismissed the crimes Cosby was convicted of.
You showed clips of The Cosby Show and allowed Cosby's attorney to assert Cosby was a Civil Rights icon on par with #MLK #MalcolmX and #NelsonMandela. You shamed @NBCPhiladelphia and further traumatized Cosby's victims.
Your report claimed Cosby will be "out soon" and asserted that Cosby is preparing "new material," including "documentaries" he is writing.

You presented a promo for Cosby with no pushback by your reporter who seemed in thrall to attorney Wyatt.

You owe us all an apology.
Every day Cosby's victims stood outside the courthouse hoping for justice. Some were in tears. Often they stood in the rain, just to be there, to bear witness.

Your report was an assault on these strong, brave survivors.

I hope you will issue an on-air apology.
